60 Second Brownie For One & Mocha International Delight Iced Coffee {Afternoon Pick Me Up}

Do you have a certain time of the day when, as a mom, you just need a little pick me up?  For me that time comes in the afternoon.  I like to take a little break and have some time for myself where I accomplish nothing.  It doesn’t need to be a long time…often it is only 10 minutes but it helps me recharge!  I love to have a little snack and browse through some of my magazines.
When I received a package recently from International Delight Iced Coffee containing an iced coffee travel cup, a t-shirt and a notepad, I knew what my next afternoon treat was going to be….mocha flavored iced coffee and a 60 Second Brownie For One!  You’ve already heard me talk about International Delight Iced Coffee and how the mocha flavor is my favorite!  Well, I have some great news…the mocha flavored International Delight Iced Coffee is coming to Sam’s Club in the beginning of May!  It will be sold in a twin pack and will be found in the refrigerated section of the store.  Since it wasn’t available at Sam’s Club in time for me to do this post, I picked some up from Walmart.  You can see my shopping trip in my Google+ album.

Okay, I have my mocha flavored International Delight Iced Coffee in my fridge and now I need a quick but delicious treat (preferable containing chocolate) to enjoy with it.  One of my go to treats that I’ve been making for years is a 60 Second Brownie For One.

Here is what I used to make the brownie:
Packaged Brownie Mix (I used sugar free but any will work)
Water, Non-stick spray, Tablespoon
Small Microwavable Container (a coffee cup works too)
I sprayed the container with non-stick cooking spray, added 2 tablespoons of brownie mix, poured in 1 tablespoon of water and mixed it with a fork.  Then, I put it in the microwave for 60 seconds and have a delicious, warm brownie…for one!!

I like to top my brownies with a little whipped cream and a few mini chocolate chips.

Now that my snack is ready, it’s time to move onto the mocha flavored International Delight Iced Coffee.

One of my many favorite things about International Delight Iced Coffee is the price.  I just noticed this sign outside a fast food chain yesterday…”Iced coffee starting at $2.25″!  That is the starting price for 1 drink and the price for 1 drink at a coffee shop is about $3.69!  One carton of International Delight Iced Coffee was only $3.98 or $7.96 for 2 at my Walmart!

To make my iced coffee drink, I shook the carton well and then poured it over ice in my glass.

I topped it with whipped cream and put the lid on.

I like to spend my small breaks outside.  Since no one was home to take a picture of me, I set my camera on self-timer, ran to my chair, plopped down, grabbed my iced coffee and the camera snapped!
